the earned entitlements like payroll taxes for medicare and social security are putting you in a taker category. no one suggests that whatsoever. >> jon: when you were saying takers you don't mean sweet old grams you mean hobo joe. i got it. but here is the thing: back in 2011 congressman paul ryan was pretty specific about how he defined taker. according to the tax foundation between 60% and 70% of americans get more benefits from the federal government than they pay back in taxes. we're getting to a society where we have a net majority of takers versus makers. >> jon: you are defining taker as as 70% of society. that's (bleep) takers. imagine how high that percentage would be if he included social security and medicare recipients on the taker list. you don't have to imagine it because it wouldn't be higher because it includes it on the taker list, social security and medicare according to the tax foundation report sighted by a paul reya, sorry ryan. if you don't include social security and medicare on the takers list you can't get to romney's more generous 47% taker to maker ratio.

government workers were given of taxpayer money to your taxes to allow green energy company to great prosperity. that path is a disaster. balancing the government books is not what matters most. government is not the and all and be all. the health of america is not about government at all. balancing the books as a nice goal but that is not our primary objective. our objective is to grow the private sector. need to focus our efforts and ideas to grow the american economy, not the government economy. i will talk about a couple of other points but if you take nothing else away from what i say, understand this -- we must not become the party of austerity. we must not be the party of austerity. we must be the party of growth. we know the government is out of control and the public knows that, too, yet we just lost an election. we cannot afford to fight on our terms. the republican party must become the party of growth, the party for a prosperous future based on economic growth, an opportunity based on every community in this great nation and not based in washington, d.c. we have fall into

about. the obama administration has sort of taken this tactic in the past, during the payroll tax cut fight, during the student loan fight, really circumventing congress and trying to build a ground swell of support among the people, to pressure congress to get what it wants to get done passed. so in this case, that is the stiffer gun law. so you're going to see vice president biden out today, holding that roundtable, talking about gun legislation. he'll be joined by his cabinet secretaries as well as a democratic senator, tim kaine, to really try to talk to the people about why he thinks this for gun legislation is a good idea. but, of course, as you just mapped out, there is a lot of opposition to this, particularly in states like virginia. so they're hoping to get moderates on their side, so that when this really does go to a fight, they will have the votes in the end. senior administration officials tell me, privately, they think that there is a lot of support for universal background checks and for limiting high-capacity magazines, but, of course, that ban on assault weapons is r

that in our tax code. our tax code is so complicated because there are so many giveaways to the special interest groups or the well-connected that don't privilege americans that work hard and try to put food on the table. >> i have often wondered and explored this if people have an appetite for limited government? americans in general, the government keeps getting bigger. we struggle to obtain the a slower right of growth, which is a great vibtry in a way it is. have you found an appetite for limited government? or limited government for others and not for themselves? >> i believe so. i said often times in the campaign trail that the constitution is very popular and big government is not popular. that is where we should anchor our program and policies. you saw this in the president's speech on monday even though it was a very liberal speech. he didn't call for big government. >> the inaugural address? >> yeah, the inaugural address. that's because he knows what bill clinton knew in 1996, that big government is over. so i do think -- >> the era is over. >> yeah. again, if political leade

, and the president represents it. look at the polling. the president stood up for tax fairness, and people voted for him. he's standing up to protect social security and medicare. people want to do that. there will be some changes but not fundamental ones. on climate change 80% of the people in the ap poll agree with the president it's a real problem and we have to deal with it. the majority of the country is with him on gay marriage, with him on issues like inaugural reform. barack obama didn't just speak to america, he was speaking for america, no matter how much that pains republicans to hear. they're out of step and out of the mainstream. >> is it a deliberate effort -- here is conservative rich lowry from "the national review." he writes in politico that the real president obama is now revealing himself. by the way, i'm with that thought. i think it was the real obama, not covered up politics, the real thing on monday. he wrote, obama settled once and for all the debate over his place on the political spectrum and his political designs. he's an unabashed liberal determined to shift our poli
